Hi, Might point out Unless it has changed Briggs does this for nothing. If you have it done, you can always go to a Magnatron. and if the magnets were starting to get weak in the flywheel they will come back at full strength. So there is nothing to lose. Al Eden

If you send your flywheel to B$S, make sure you clean it very well. They are not a cleaning service and Expect there customers to understand that they do it as an added expense.( I do not Know ir they charge for it). Even if it costs money. They have been the best company to work with for us for many years. They are very organized. They will treat you with respect. The task of repolarizing the flywheel involves switching the polarity of the magnet. Once the magnetic force of your flywheel is reversed, you are in business. It has been done many times for us and is incredible in the results. Hope this helps.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
